Gibson's Players of the Week: Week Five
Un, deux, Trois, the Alouettes picked up three of four possible Gibson's for week number five.
Only the stellar debut of Calgary's Bo Levi Mitchell, changed the potential of an Alouette sweep, as the Calgary pivot threw for 376 yards, three touchdowns and offered up poise and stability as the Stamps went to the depth chart owing to injury.
The Als, who have been the league's soap opera squad thus far in the season, picked up their pace a bit over the week, holding off an Edmonton Eskimo late game charge, with an impressive defensive stand (all be it assisted by some questions on officiating).
Still the Alouettes D squad showed off it's skills and that, along with Special Teams and Top Canadian proved good enough for three out of four Gibson's for the Als.
A review of the the Gibson's panel selections can be found below.
